x/12 > y/40

The above statement can be rephrased as is x > 0.3y?

(1) 10x > 3y
=> x > 0.3y - Sufficient

(2) 12x < 4y
=> x< (1/3)y
x < 0.33y
So x can be .32y or .28y - Not sufficient.

Hence A

Cheers!

I. 10x > 3Y
Dividing sides by 120, X/12 > Y/40. Hence sufficient.
II. 12x < 4y
Since x/12 > y/4, therefore, 40x > 12y. Dividing by 3, 40x/3 > 4y or 13.33x > 4y. Now, we dont know from this whether 12x > or < 4y. Insuffucient.
